Please join us as we begin our Lenten journey to strengthen our faith. We start our day by celebrating Ash Wednesday Mass with the students, faculty and staff of the St. Xavier community. Then we hear our guest speaker Sharon Christy. There is an opportunity to pray the Rosary and to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We then conclude with a Lenten Luncheon together.
Not Catholic? Please join us anyway. This is a beautiful event to be shared by all.
We are blessed to welcome our guest speaker, Sharon Christy, whose speech entitled “Rethinking Lent: Breathing New Life into Old Traditions” will take us on a nostalgic walk through the Lenten seasons of our past and a journey towards a new approach to Lent today. Ms. Christy is the Director of Evangelization for the St. Anthony / Holy Angels Pastoral Region.
